Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

Can't Access Disqus - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Disqus must be fried today over the reaction to Jim Comey's statement that Hillary Clinton won't be indicted for her email shenanigans which would pull a 14 year minimum stretch if your name happened to be Wesley Snipes. I can't imagine any other reason.

Haven't been able to access the website for weeks. Not just my computer. The website partially loads, but lines of text are jumbled together, and the sign on link does not even appear.

DISQUS is completely down, has been for close to two hours. The "DISQUS down" site is obviously a completely fallacious site that is probably run by DISQUS advertisers. Too bad DISQUS doesn't have a feedback function where users could actually let site admins know it's down.

Down right now.

Goodbye to Disqus. If you can't run a commenting system for NPR, get out of the business.

I've never had a problem accessing discus comments before but today on theothermccain.com, nerve.com and mediaite.com all fail to display (Disqus) comments.

Edit: My report was apparently related to a Chrome extension.

Haven't been able to see disqus comments on CNN and ABCNEWS, or WCBSnews for the last 10 days. I even tried a different browser, deleted cache and cookies but no luck.

Disqus will not load comments in Breitbart's site. If you click on their reload link, it does not recognize your facebook ID.

I have been asked to verify my email account but when I click on the verify link I am directed to a site that says "web site cannot be found." I have used Disqus for a long time... what is the problem??
